R.I.P. Things

Michael Lopp discussing his switch from Things:

How can I trust that I’m using the state of the art in productivity systems when I’m using an application that took over two years to land sync I could easily use? What other innovations are they struggling to land in the application? Why hasn’t the artwork changed in forever? What is that smell? That smell is stagnation.

His general take is spot on, but honestly I’m surprised by the timing. Cultured Code has promised a refresh later this year. I have enough dedicated to the ecosystem to give them that long.
